TRUMP SAYS IT LIKE IT IS ON WHO ATTACKED US IN 9-11

On 9/11, Trump Boldly Placed Blame Exactly
Where It Belongs, Scorches Islamism

 Print
One of the many things about former President Barack Obama that caused great consternation among many Americans was his apparent inability to utter the words “radical,” “Islamist” and “terrorist” all in the same sentence, much less strung together as an apt descriptive term for violent jihadists waging war against the West.  Whether Obama’s refusal to say that particular phrase — and Lord knows he had ample opportunities to do so throughout his tenure in office — was due to an affinity for the Muslim faith or because he was beholden to the orthodoxy of liberal political correctness may never truly be known.
But while that accurate description of Islamic jihadists rarely, if ever, crossed Obama’s lips, President Donald Trump has no such qualms about using the term, especially when speaking about the atrocities committed by “radical Islamist terrorists.”  According to Breitbart, Trump used the phrase to describe the 19 hijackers who commandeered commercial airliners and crashed them into the World Trade Center, Pentagon and an open field in Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, 2001.
In a presidential proclamation designating Tuesday as “Patriot Day 2018,” Trump honored those who were killed and those exhibited incredible bravery and sacrifice on behalf of others on that horrible day in 2001. He also made sure to point out exactly who was responsible for that terrible tragedy.  “On Patriot Day, we honor the memories of the nearly 3,000 precious lives we lost on September 11, 2001, and of every hero who has given their life since that day to protect our safety and our freedom,” Trump wrote.
“We come together, today, to recall this timeless truth: When America is united, no force on Earth can break us apart. Our values endure; our people thrive; our Nation prevails; and the memory of our loved ones never fades,” he continued   “Although that fateful Tuesday 17 years ago began like any other, it erupted into horror and anguish when radical Islamist terrorists carried out an unprecedented attack on our homeland,” wrote Trump, using the descriptive term that Obama so studiously avoided.
“In New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, the enemies of liberty took aim on America, but their evil acts could not crush our spirit, overcome our will, or loosen our commitment to freedom,” he added. Trump wrote about the “heroism” displayed by the passengers of United Flight 93 who fought back against the terrorists and forced the airliner to crash in an open field in Pennsylvania.   He also paid homage to the first responders who rushed into the burning buildings of the Twin Towers and Pentagon to help rescue the trapped and wounded, and noted all of those who risked their health in the weeks and months after the attack to dig through the toxic rubble in search of survivors and the bodies of those who had been lost.
“The noble sacrifices of these true patriots are forged into the great history of America,” Trump wrote.
Thus, in memory of those who were lost and those who have since fought back against our nation’s enemies to defend freedom and our way of life, Trump referenced a Dec. 2001 joint resolution from Congress that had designated Sept. 11 of each year hereafter as “Patriot Day” in honor of those brave individuals who sacrificed so much.   Trump ordered “all departments, agencies, and instrumentalities of the United States” to fly the American flag at half-staff on Sept. 11 in their honor, as well as observe an official moment of silence to mark the moment the attack first occurred — 8:46 a.m. Eastern time — and encouraged the governors of the various states and territories to follow his lead and call for the same.
Obama, for reasons known only to him, refrained from ever placing the onus of terrorism on the “radical Islamist terrorists” who ruthlessly commit terrorist acts, which made it that much more difficult for our nation to defend and fight back against the known but unnamed enemy.  But Trump has no problems calling the jihadists exactly what they are, and there is no disputing that “radical Islamist terrorists” will be called out and mercilessly dealt with by this president.

IS THERE A PROGRAMER OUT THERE THAT CAN COME UP WITH SOMETHING TO REPLACE GOOGLE?

Leaked email shows Google’s plan to stop

Trump backfired in a way they never saw coming

democrats claim a handful of strange Russian Facebook ads swept Trump into the White House.
But the reality is Facebook, Twitter, and Google held their thumb on the scale in Hillary Clinton’s favor.
And this new leaked email showed how Google’s plan to stop Trump backfired in a way they never saw coming.
In 2016, Google made allegedly “non-partisan” efforts to boost Latino turnout.  It does not take an expert to see that these efforts were clearly made in order to increase turnout for Hillary Clinton.  However, Google may have accidently turned out more votes for Donald Trump than expected.
Fox News reports:
A Google executive’s leaked email reveals efforts to increase Latino turnout prior to the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the executive’s “surprise” at Donald Trump’s performance among Latino voters.  The 675-word email, first obtained exclusively by Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” was written by the tech giant’s former head of multicultural marketing and details a range of efforts to increase Latino turnout, including the support of a partner organization that helped to drive voters to the polls.
At the end of the email, the author wrote that Latino Googler’s are “probably hurting right now” and that the election results are “tough to handle now that we know not all of us were against this.” The Google executive acknowledges that Latinos, long considered the “sleeping giant” of American politics thanks to the country’s rapidly shifting demographics, did vote in record-breaking numbers and turned out early—but a significant percentage supported Trump instead of Hillary Clinton.
The majority of Latino voters did in fact vote for Hillary Clinton.  But Donald Trump won a larger share of the voting bloc than Mitt Romney did in 2012. Increasing Donald Trump’s Latino voter turnout in key states such as Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania was crucial to his victory. It must infuriate many of the staff at Google knowing that they may have accidentally helped secure Donald Trump’s victory.
They won’t let that happen again.
It’s become Standard Operating Procedure for Silicon Valley to censor or outright ban anyone who disagrees with their leftist agenda.  They’ve even tried to suppress Patriot Pulse articles on social media.  But no one can really know how deep their electioneering goes.

JUST WHAT AMERICAN DOES NOT NEED A REPLACEMENT FOR COMMON CORE U.N. SUSTAINABLE EDUCATION

Education Secretary DeVos Signs On To
Globalist UN Education Agenda For U.S.

  By: Alex Newman
Published : September 10, 2018

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos signed on to a radical global “declaration” that calls for, among other absurdities, brainwashing children to believe in the United Nations-backed ideology of total government known as “‘sustainable development.” In fact, the pseudo-treaty inked by Trump’s education chief suggests that the purpose of schooling is to indoctrinate children with the right “values” and teach them to be obedient worker drones.

Under the un-American vision agreed to last week in Argentina, the governments purported to commit their nations to globalized brainwashing under the guise of “education.” To be clear, this is a dangerous policy document that, if implemented, will contribute to finalizing the destruction of traditional education in America and replacing it with a total indoctrination program aligned with the systems of some of the world’s most murderous autocracies. Americans should be outraged.

The declaration, produced at the first ever “Education Working Group” of the Group of 20 (G20) network of governments and dictatorships, was titled “‘Building consensus for fair and sustainable development.” How free nations can build “consensus” on “education” with murderous Islamist and Communist regimes that indoctrinate all children under their rule with evil ideologies of oppression was not made clear.

The whole education vision signed by the 20 governments and tyrants revolves around the United Nations Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. This extremist document, which demands national and international wealth redistribution as well as brainwashing of all children, is basically a road-map to global totalitarianism. It was literally developed by mass-murdering dictatorships. But it has never ratified by the U.S. Senate, as required by the Constitution of treaties.

The G20 education document is wild in terms of what it openly promotes. “Education is the foundation of personal development as it provides children, youth and adults with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes necessary to reach their full potential,” declared the education ministers (emphasis added), including some whose regimes torture and slaughter opponents of communism or sharia law.

They also demanded more data-gathering and -mining. “We recognize the value of policies based on evidence and the importance of having robust and comprehensive learning assessment systems and data in order to measure progress and learning outcomes, to help ensure quality education for all at all stages of life,” the document says, one of many references to government-provided “education” from cradle to grave informed by perpetual, Orwellian vacuuming up of student data.

The agreement also demands further globalization of education, a process that has been underway for many years. For instance, it calls for “international investment in education,” a theme consistent with the ongoing globalization of education under the UN’s extremist “education” agency known as UNESCO. “We acknowledge the role of existing and potential international mechanisms for financing education,” the document continues.

They also vowed to push it further. “We commit to strengthening international cooperation… and developing joint initiatives at bilateral, regional and multilateral levels,” the mostly unelected education czars said. In fact, the document goes on to say it explicitly: “We commit to facilitating the internationalization of education.” That means education policy for American children, decided by foreign governments and tyrants, as well as dictator clubs such as the UN. The signers, including DeVos, agreed to “promote the development of curricula … which have a strong focus on … values and attitudes.” They also committed to “foster the inclusion of non-cognitive skills such as socio-emotional skills across the curriculum,” which is basically educrat psycho-babble to conceal a program of psychological conditioning aiming to bring about the values and attitudes demanded by the establishment in all children.

Finally, the education chiefs vowed to “provide education that supports better integration of common values like … sustainable development.” As far as the nebulous, totalitarian concept relates to education, the UN has already made clear that it considers real education and educated people a threat to its grotesque notions of “sustainability.”

“Generally, more highly educated people, who have higher incomes, consume more resources than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes,” explains a UN “toolkit” for global “sustainable” education, ‘which is still posted online at UNESCO’s website. “In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability.”

The declaration also undermines true human rights — free speech, freedom of the press, gun rights, and other God-given rights — and promotes the communist-inspired notion of government-granted privileges as rights. “We stress that access to quality education is a human right,” the education ministers declared, as if mass-murdering communist tyrants had the same vision of “quality education” as liberty-minded Christian parents in America.

Common Core Diva Lynne Taylor, a respected education researcher, was among the voices sounding the alarm. “DeVos’s global roots are showing, as they have been since she was sworn into office. The question is exactly what will she do with all the ideas, policies, and, the damning Declaration for not only education, but our very freedoms,” Taylor warned. “I can tell you we all need to brace for impact.”

Trump should fire DeVos — and not just for participating in this dangerous effort to further globalize education and standardize the indoctrination of children worldwide. But rather than replacing her, Trump should work with Congress to shut down the entire unconstitutional department and get the feds completely out of education. The alternative is the continued subversion of education in America — and ultimately, the death of freedom.
